Advice from Supermodels Gisele and Heidi on how to get the perfect body

Blasted all over the internet the following meme has been popping up everywhere. – “When Did This Become Hotter Than This”. The 2×4 compares our modern super skinny celebrities with gorgeous beauty icons from past few decades.

So, what’s hotter?

Women don’t need to be stick thin for men to find them attractive. Very attractive even. Research has shown that a hip-to-waist ratio of 70% is the most attractive female proportion. Men want curves and not “stick-straight”, starved bodies. We cannot lie, however; and pretend that men appreciate every bit of a woman’s extra pounds. They appreciate extra weight only if it is in the right places. And those places are obviously in the breasts and the “derriere”.

Advice from supermodels Gisele and Heidi.

The perfect body takes motivation, perspiration and work. If you read interviews from top supermodels like Gisele Bundchen or Heidi Klum, they admit that their appearances do not come easy. Gisele has a ambitious exercise routine and is a fan of keeping in shape with Tai-kwon-do. She points out how relatives of hers have similar genes to her, but not as fabulous bodies. Why she explains, because they simply don’t work as hard as she does to ensure she looks great. When Heidi Klum was asked for the thousandth time how she lost her baby weight in time for an upcoming Victoria’s Secret fashion show, she admits that she went to bed every night thinking, “Do I want to go to bed hungry or have a fat backside?”.

So how do non-supermodels get the perfect body? 

A great body is lean and healthy. A good diet will get rid of all the fat we don’t want. New research confirms that it is no particular diet plan that will work for everyone. In fact the only thing that works across the board is counting calories – calories in vs. calories out. Counting calories is easy enough with an online calorie counter and will make sure that you are consuming the correct number of calories to lose weight. The most recommended counter out there right now is  MyFoodDiary.com. It is great place to start your weight loss program and to start skinny.

Mold your perfect body

The correct exercise routine will build a strong, lean body and add muscle in all the right places. Start a new exercise routine by talking with a personal trainer. He or she will show you how to tighten up the areas you want to reduce and how to build up the areas you want to enhance. Remember, the same exercise plan will not work for everyone. A bottom heavy woman will want to create lean thighs and a smaller butt. However, a top heavy woman will want to build her backside. Following the correct exercise plan diligently will help you create that perfect 70% hip-to-waist ratio which men will love and woman will hate you for.

Supermodel Advice on how to get the perfect body

Fiesta Time!

23 May

Sorry I have been absent from my posts… I have just started up a new job. Nothing fancy, I am working at an upscale Mexican restaurant down in Soho and tonight. Tonight was my first night. I work part-time during the day and take a summer course so this will just be 3 nights a week. I had a really great first day though. The restaurant is very easy-paced and because it is more expensive I still make a solid amount in tips which is rather important for the impoverished college student. It was so funny, the first person I really spoke with (the bartender) told me he had gone raw for 5 years and worked in all these juice bars and basically we just chatted about wheatgrass and nutrients for twenty minutes- I was so happy! Anyways, I have yet to decide whether the temptation of mexican food so frequently will be good for my diet plan or bad, but I actually think it’ll be good. I’ll be kept very busy running around, which will keep me from binge snacking and just binging in general. MOST of all, (and one of the main reasons I got a part-time night gig) is that it will keep me from going out with my friends most nights (like I have been) therefore keeping all that alcohol and late-night 2nd dinner away and save me a bit of money too. Overall, I am very pleased…

Unfortunately, however; I haven’t been to the gym for a week. I have just been lazy, but I figure I will work it into my schedule and get back on track. It’s funny, I actually started this blog when I was about a size 6 and since have grown to a size 8, and even though my goal is to slim down, I really embrace my bigger size as well. It’s strange because all my friends are so skinny, but I still feel and feel like I look so sexy. I am actually RATHER curvy right now, and I am such a curve lovin’ gal that I Can’t Help but love ’em. I don’t feel as strong physically though, soI will definitely be heading back to the gym. Life is just so much better when you stop being on a diet. I have decided no more crazyness – just eat less, exercise M-O-D-E-R-A-T-I-O-N.

Lately, I haven’t been concerning myself with food, nutrients, starving, cooking etc. and life has been so much better. WEll, I’ve also been going out a lot, but still food is such a pressure and a burden in society. Lets just stop it all, enjoy eating, enjoy food and enjoy living! woohoo

Do you just have to be super skinny to be thin and have a curves?

Skinny and Curvy?

24 Mar

Do anyone have any good workout/nutrition tips for loosing weight, but staying curvy. I’d like a smaller waist (I suppose like everyone), but don’t want to have a “straight” body. Perhaps working out less and maintaining a healthy reduced calorie diet is the best way to go.. any thoughts or advice??

My proportions: March 21st

22 Mar

My waist: 28.5″
My hips: 37.8″
So my Waist to Hip Ratio is (Waist/Hips): .754
My BMI (I’m 5’6″) and weigh 134lbs: 21.6

Ideally according to BMI research I would be most attractive weighing 118-124lbs(19-20BMI). I am not a fun of BMI because I work out and have muscle and I just don’t feel like it is taken into account. I know I look great at 128 lbs, so maybe the 124lbs isn’t that far off. My waist-hip ratio kind of confirms some thoughts I’ve been having that I am gaining a straighter figure since starting to diet and workout..
That is the last thing I want! Anyone have any tips?? I’ve always felt that if I kept enough fat in my diet that I would keep a good proportion.

If you wanna find out your ratio and BMI I have added links!
Tips: Measure your hips at their largest spot (over your buttocks). Also, beware the Waist-Hip Ratio Calculator makes you measure to the nearest inch-I prefer to just pick up a calculator

Hip-to-Waist Ratio vs. BMI: Who’s Hotter?

22 Mar

I think it is a normal human instinct to strive towards self-improvement and perfect. And as a curious woman I want to know what “perfection” is. As an ambitious woman I want to know how to be perfect. Bad, I know – but I like think of it as inspiring instead of self-criticizing. I write more about it here on ThatPerfect.com, another blog I write for.

What is the sexiest BMI

What BMI is the hottest?

What is the sexiest female body?
In the race to gage female sex appeal, there are two scientific teams-one determined that the hip-to-waist ratio is the best judge of feminine attractiveness, the other BMI. Anthropometric systems are obviously not even close to 100% accurate, but I still find the findings intriguing.

Hip to Waist Ratio:
It was found that a women is most attractive when her hip to waist ratio is 70% (for you guys out there, the ideal is 90%). Studies continue that “interest is lost” (nice way to put it, huh) when the ratio exceeds 80%. Interesting; this study used photos of Playboy models.

The mode size of a Playboy model is 34-24-36, weight is 110, and height is 5’7″.
Waist-Hip Ratio of .7 and BMI of 17.8.

Beauty icons including Marilyn Monroe, Alessandra Ambrosio, Sophia Loren, Kate Moss, and even Venus de Milo all have ratios around 70%. Notice they have significantly different weights.

The case for BMI

Another study found that male experiment participants’ perceptions of attractiveness matched body-mass ratios much more closely than the waist-hip ratios.

The study concluded that those judged most attractive had a BMI between 19-20. Additionally it was found that attractiveness drops dramatically below 17 BMI and above 25. Chart of findings above and below.

BMIs fashion models, 17.57
Other models (including centerfolds), 18.09
Anorexic women, 14.72
Bulimic women, 23.66
Normal women, 21.86.
